A1 motorway (Cyprus)

The A1 motorway (locally referred to as the Nicosia - Limassol highway, Greek: δρόμος Λευκωσίας - Λεμεσού) marked the beginning of an ambitious government project to link all the main cities on the island with modern 4 lane highways. It is 73km long and is free of any at-grade intersections. It links the capital Nicosia (which is the administrative and financial hub), with Limassol, the largest port (and second largest city) on the island. It was completed in October 1984, while upgrades within the city of Limassol will be completed in summer 2008. These upgrades include the Polemidia and Troodos junction, Agia Filaxis Junction, Agios Athanasios junction, Linopetra junction and Germasogeia junction, and involve the replacement of a series of roundabouts with flyovers or underpasses.
